TORONTO — A suspected Tunisian terrorist accused of plotting to derail a VIA Rail passenger train near Toronto said Thursday he wanted to be judged by the “holy book” rather than a “book written by humans.”
Appearing by video link at a downtown courthouse, Chiheb Esseghaier, 30, once again expressed disdain for the Criminal Code of Canada as his case was adjourned until June 3 to allow time for him to find a lawyer.
“I have agreed to have a lawyer, no problem, but I wish that this lawyer will cooperate with me,” he said. “I need the holy book as a reference for my judgment. I don’t want a book written by humans.”...Tough toenails, pal. You're stuck with the infidels' law. Boo hoo for you!
